Ofc. Hawkins & K9 Indy

It’s with great sadness and a heavy heart that the Fort Myers Police Department announces the passing of Police K9 Indy on Sunday, February 7, 2015. Over the two weeks prior to his death, Indy began suffering severe gastrointestinal complications that led to his rapid demise.

Indy began his service with the Police Department in March of 2005, under the care of his partner, Sergeant Enrico Doro. Due to a change in Sergeant Doro’s assignment, Indy was reassigned to Officer Jeremy Hawkins in December of 2008. Officer Hawkins and Indy spent the last six years together until Indy’s passing on Sunday.

Throughout their career, Officer Hawkins and Indy spent every day together while on and off duty. Officer Hawkins and Indy served our City with pride spending countless hours training, tracking fleeing felons, searching buildings, finding narcotics, and volunteering in hundreds of demonstrations for children and special events. K9 Indy’s notable statistics include:

• 1,400 Hours of Training
• 1,550 Deployments
• 120 Building Searches
• 116 Tracks
• 1,280 Narcotics Searches
• 27 Felons Apprehended

“K9 Indy was a beloved member of our law enforcement family. The faithful service and protection he provided will always be remembered,” said Police Chief Douglas Baker.
